Sorry if I didn’t explain very well. I’m asking about microorganisms. There’s a popular mix called Recharge made by Real Growers that you apply when you water. It contains 4 glomus (fungi),4 bacillus(bacteria), 2 trichoderma(fungi),kelp, molasses, humic acid, amino acid, and fulvic acid. It’s very well received in the cannabis world and I was wondering if it would be the same in our creepy/ beautiful world of cps. Sorry for this lengthy reply, I hope this will shed some light on this topic and be beneficial to all of us. Thank you Matt and Leah you guys are awesome!
You want to check some labels, as those makers use all of these flashy "statistics" to make baloney claims about their product. I don't care if companies put "amino acids" in the soil, since these are just going to be broken down and used somewhere else. Repeat after me, there is NO way to ensure that amino acids will do a certain thing somewhere. So if you see them claim that their amino acids promote flowering, a red flag.
Secondly, I think the thing making them grow fast is the kelp and molasses, as well as the organic acids. Using peat gives enough humic and fulvic acid so don't bother with that. Humic acid is the tannin-like brown stuff that washes off peat. MaxSea does Kelp and Mollasses just fine.
Lastly, the bacteria may offer benefit to plants like Helis and Neps which are grown in sterilized media indoors, but a flytrap outdoors has already been colonized by bacteria and fungi.
Stay away from products designed for weed, especially special "formulated things". I find that you can make them yourself for 1/10 the cost and the same effects. They are targeting weed growers who want to make the "most bud/yield" on "rare strains", and essentially trying to sucker them in, in most cases.
That said, if you do your research and find benefit you could not make yourself, go right ahead. I'd love to hear your results!
